Welcome to Inside Wine Santa Barbara! Co-founded in September of 2012 by Tama Takahashi and Lila Brown - two women passionate about wine and food and working in the wine business. Lila and I met in baking class at the School of Culinary Arts at SBCC. We channeled our mutual interest in wine & food into creating educational and affordable wine & food events.

In January 2015, Lila moved to Sonoma and Hana-Lee Sedgwick joined me as Co-organizer. She is leaving Inside Wine Santa Barbara as she and her husband will be welcoming a child into their family.

I will continue hand-selecting the best and most interesting winemakers and wineries to share withour membership. I have edited three cookbooks, including an upcoming one for The Lark restaurant and am studying for my level 2 WSET.

Our group features tastings with winemakers and sommeliers who give us the "inside scoop" on viniculture, viticulture, wine-food pairing and wine appreciation. We live in one of the top wine producing regions in the world--come and celebrate it with us!  --Tama
